  • 1 pork loin roast (bone-in, about 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 large clove garlic (halved lengthwise)
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch black pepper
  • Optional: 2 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (dark grade A or grade B)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 325 F.

  2. Rub the roast all over with the garlic halves; discard the garlic. Place the roast, fat side up, on a rack in a roasting pan; sprinkle with salt and pepper. If there is little fat on top of the roast, lay 2 slices of bacon across the top (optional).

  3. Roast the pork, uncovered, for about 2 hours.

  4. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Brush the glaze over the roast and continue baking for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the roast registers about 155 F on a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the meatiest part of the roast (not touching bone or fat). Let the roast rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
